To Live & Die, Los Angeles | 40 x 20 inches | Archival pigment giclée on metallic silver paper; custom frame with UV filtering acrylic glass
Sergio Ximenez (b. 1988, Los Angeles) is a conceptual photographic artist that intends to create contemporary art in dialogue with newsworthy situations and current events, critiquing societal constructs and ideologies.
His photographic work delves into the prevalence of lens-based capturing, recording and monitoring devices in our society, the ease in proliferation of these devices into our every day lives, and how the power dynamics attached to these ubiquitous devices can affect, influence, and even control, human behavior between and amongst the removed observer and the observed subjects.
He currently surveys, creates and resides in Los Angeles, CA.
